Sporting the exact same specification of the 1957 original Les Paul standard guitar, this painstakingly replicated model is the closest you will get bar from popping into a time machine and getting your hands on an original. The introduction of Gibsons pioneering PAF humbucker was what really rocketed this model to world fame and has been an industry standard guitar ever since. The Antique gold is a firm nod of respect to the original ground breaking model and it's made available for a generation of new players today.
"A truly magnificent instrument with its natural mahogany back and neck, while the top is in gleaming gold with contrasting ivory trim", this was what Gibson had to say back when this guitar originally came out and the exact same applies today. Add to this those hum cancelling PAF humbuckers with Alnico III magnets we mentioned earlier and you have a guitar that has it all, legendary sound, drop dead gorgeous looks and total comfort.
Other key features of the 1957 reissue include a chunky 50s profile neck with a fast, one-piece rosewood fretboard containing trapezoid inlays, bumblebee tone-caps to control tone and volume on each pickup independently and deluxe machine heads. Put all this together and you have a legend from the past available for you to treasure forever, the 1957 Gibson Les Paul reissue.
